Me, Jill Robinson and the Seaside Mystery
From the author of Trebizon Books, two more improbable episodes in the soap-opera, rent-a-crisis life of Jill Robinson. Just the sort of escapist, excitement by the bucketful reading that many youngsters call 'real books'. The fact that these are part of yet another series is a real bonus - stereotypes, melodrama, the lot!
In one book Jill and her family move to a new town, instantly start sorting out the locals' problems and generally pull things into shape, including the Mayor, Lindy's Dad, who doesn't appreciate his only daughter and her bizarre behaviour. What luck Jill's there to put them straight!
The second episode sees the family on a cheap caravan holiday where brother Tony becomes friendly with a devious boy, Sam. Jill is sure that there's a mystery in it somewhere and golly she's right! The local museum is minus a few model ships; Sam's a suspect, but the real culprit must be nailed by Jill and her phenomenal good luck. Look out for 'the boy with the fringe'; he's shifty-looking enough to be the villain.
